All about this Equality and Diversity for Teachers

Education providers have a legal duty to protect their employees and pupils from being unfairly treated. As a teacher, you have a responsibility to promote equality, diversity and inclusion when teaching and in general whilst you are at work.

As a teacher, you will need to know what protected characteristics are under the Equality Act 2010, as you will have a responsibility to your pupils within your classroom and colleagues within your education setting. Protected characteristics are specific aspects of a person’s identity and are personal to an individual. Every individual possesses several of these protected characteristics, albeit some will have more than others.

You will consider that if a person is discriminated against on the basis of any of the nine protected characteristics, then this is unlawful under the Equality Act 2010 and that not all unfair treatment is unlawful.

You will learn that having a well thought out equality, diversity and inclusion policy is the first step in preventing discrimination and unacceptable behaviour within an education setting. It is an overarching written statement detailing how equality, diversity and inclusion will be promoted and how discrimination will be prevented which will be outlined in our course.

Finally in our equality and diversity for teachers course, you will consider what steps you can take when making a discrimination complaint and that your employer should have procedures that detail the actions to take and how to make a complaint if you are a victim of discrimination or other unacceptable behaviour.

In order to complete the course, you must achieve 80% or more in the final multiple choice quiz.

You will earn 3 CPD points on completion of the course, this course will take around 3 hours to complete and the certificate will last for two years.
